{Musings on Beauty, Kindness & Stardust}

In November, I was delighted to be the guest speaker for "Women, Chocolate and the Arts"—the annual fundraiser for Mary and Martha's Place in Atlanta, a women's spiritual organization. Over 100 guests had a marvelous time at this festive event! (It was covered in the winter issue of Season magazine; click the link and see page 55.) 

My presentation, "From Downton Abbey to Royal Weddings: Our Search for Beauty and Order in a Chaotic World," was a collection of personal stories and musings on beauty, ritual, femininity, kindness, and a bit of stardust! Here are a few quotes I shared with the audience during my presentation....enjoy!

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.
It is the source of all true art and science.
~Albert Einstein

Beauty will save the world.
~Fyodor Dostoevsky

To see beauty is to see light.
~Victor Hugo

Kindness is my religion.
~His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Violence flourishes unchecked, when the feminine withdraws.
This world needs the feminine now, more than ever.
~Regena Thomashauer

Nothing changes the environment like one person deciding to love another, no matter what.
~Neale Donald Walsch

Be humble for you are made of earth.
Be noble for you are made of stars.
~ancient Serbian proverb
